Annacurra GAA send our deepest sympathy to Chris and Sean McGrath. Mary passed away after a short illness and will be greatly missed. It is also with great sadness we lost Sarah Carty. In her far too few years Sarah was a dedicated member of the Camogie club. She was so strong and always positive, even in the toughest of times. She will be sadly missed and all our sympathy to her mother Mary and all her family.
